Archbishop Rowan Williams is the most gifted Anglican priest of his generation. His views are consistent and orthodox and yet he has been consistently misunderstood - especially in relation to his views on contemporary society, public morality and the common good.
In this, the final published work of his Archepiscopate, Dr Williams has assembled a series of chapters on matters of immediate public concern and the relationship of Christianity to these issues. Among his topics are 'Has Secularism Failed?: Europe, Faith and Culture', 'Human Rights and Religious Faith', Changing the Myths We Live By', 'Housekeeping: The Economic Challenge', 'The Gifts Reserved for Age: Perceptions of the Elderly', and 'Analysing Atheism'.

In The Press
In this often brilliant, always stimulating, and unfailingly even-handed book, the former Archbishop of Canterbury
weaves his erudition and Christian faith into a thread that guides him through the labyrinth where contemporary politics, secularism, ignorance, intolerance, good will, and virtue are to be found ... Williams argues brilliantly for the relevance of both religion and politics, and the contribution of each to the other.
